Former Conservative leader Michael Howard is backing an exit from an "outdated, flawed and failing space ship".
The former minister is taking place in “Conservatives In Space” a new Channel 4 reality show where 20 prominent members of the Tory Party are sent to orbit the earth in a giant space station.
Mr Howard went into the “diary room” and said that he wanted to go out into space on his own arguing that he had the ability to negotiate deals on oxygen and space suits with the universe.
But Chancellor George Osborne has said if everyone in the space ship voted to leave it would cause mass deaths due to lack of oxygen and atmosphere.
The vote on whether to stay in or out of the space ship will be held later this year. If more than half of the Conservatives vote to leave, all of them will be jettisoned to certain death, as the space ship breaks apart.
The Liberal Democrats, who were due to be in the space ship until last year’s pre-launch election, expressed relief that they weren’t about to be sent into oblivion. "We've done that already. We really don't want to do it twice" said a spokesperson.
